Have you ever gone into your child’s classroom and beheld one of those long rows of backpacks? And when you do, you notice that the backpack you bought your kids is the same as half the other backpacks lined up along the wall…?
Whether you want to make your kid’s bag more identifiable or you just want to have a little bit of fun, jazzing things up a bit, go take a look at the latest craze: PakNaks!
PakNaks are whimsical rubbery charms you can use on a variety of surfaces, but which seem to lend themselves most easily to backpacks and other bags. They attach via super-strong velcro, so you can attach one today and switch it out for another one, tomorrow! They’re fun for the kids who loves to personalize, and can also help you identify items more readily.
PakNaks retail for $3.99 apiece (plus shipping), but two lucky Want Not readers will each win five PakNaks of their choosing at the end of this contest. Just ’cause you’re pretty! And because the PakNak people are generous!
For a chance to win, go check out the available PakNak charms and then come back here to leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, May 14th, 2008, telling me which five PakNaks you want. Two lucky winners will be determined by random number generation and velcro, and they will receive the Naks they requested. One entry per person and all of that; play nice and don’t forget to pick your favorites.
